Fleet Risk Solutions
What’s it all about?
- Looking to ensure legislative compliance?
- Driven by a duty of care to your staff?
- Looking to reduce the financial burden posed by a field based work force?
ATC’s Fleet Risk Solutions (FRS) is a holistic risk management programme for improving the safety of employees who are involved in work-related driving activities.
Our risk management programmes will provide the tools that you need to demonstrate a proactive approach to managing safety at work.
Why is it needed?
According to HSE estimates…….
- A quarter of road traffic fatalities involved a commercial vehicle
- Up to a third of all traffic incidents involve someone who was at work at the time
People who drive as part of their work are at higher risk of a road accident. Employers are increasingly held to be responsible for the safety of their employees.
The Government is determined to take action to improve road safety. The penalties are getting tougher.
It’s time to take action.
A Direct Approach
FRS has been specifically designed by ATC to provide employers with a systematic methodology to enable them to meet the moral and legal responsibilities associated with the promotion of road safety at work.
Our programme is based on targeted activity in those areas where the risk exists.
FRS – The Process
Fleet Risk Solutions is a five-phased process:
- Gather appropriate historic data relating to incident cause
- Collate information on existing policies and procedures related to at-work driving
- Using data, we’ll profile your fleet, drivers, vehicles, usage and incidents
- Based on the results of our analysis, we’ll provide a series of recommendations
- We’ll deliver a programme to suit you
- We’ll agree a reporting mechanism with you to assess the impact of our work
